mitt romney has been running for this job for five years, ten months and three days but today, he's trying to buy more time. romney was supposed to end his campaign last night with a rally in new hampshire, but perhaps in a bid to turn back the clock the campaign scheduled an event in ohio that is about to get under way and another to come this afternoon in pennsylvania. romney is trying to make sure that this is not his last campaign that politically he has a tomorrow. >> tomorrow. >> tomorrow. >> tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> for the president, win or lose, this is his last campaign. >> this is a pretty emotional time for us because this is the final event of my husband's final campaign. >> in iowa last night, the place where it all began, the first couple held an extended embrace at the end of a day that saw president obama on the stump with jay-z and bruce springsteen, he seemed at peace, closing one chapter of his political life. >> it all comes down to you. it's out of my hands now. it's in yours. >> now, of course it is just down to the ballots.

, you were on the trail covering romney and there for the last days of his candidacy. do you sense now there is supposedly a come to jesus moment happening within the republican party, that the moderate wing will have a strong voice? >> well, i mean one thing you're seeing before the election, before the president won re-election and seemed like leaders in congress were going to be more willing to compromise, governor romney was sounding a bipartisan theme even during the election. even before, some people would argue the president has a mandate, some wouldn't, bipartisanship was what was persuading the most voters on the trail. after the election there's probably going to be more incentive to strike that note. >> or people will say romney failed with that message time to us to love to zoo lover, gummy bear aficionado and former speaker of the house newt gingrich. >> some would say romney failed by having too many messages but he hit his stride when he moved into bipartisanship. that was the message that worked for him, against the president, and what they stuck with when he eeked up o

've been living in for the last couple years, where obama's a terrible president, romney's going to win in a landslide and they're going to impose the republican agenda. what i write in the cover story if you look at how things have changed on the outside looks like the status quo, same president, same senate, same house but all the leverage has shifted to obama because what the democrats really want and need is revenue and now they don't need republicans to get revenue. they can just let the bush tax cuts expire, go over the fiscal cliff and have all the revenue they need whether or not john boehner and his caucus want to participate. >> jeff, i always say that i think the speaker has one of the hardest jobs in washington and i think it's -- that's in evidence now more than ever. i think the question is, if he does end of striking a grand bargain with the white house, does he hold on to his speakership. >> that's a great question. he has a very, very difficult job and the truth is, both he and the president need each other. both men need compromise. both men men want the fiscal cliff n
of reassessment. interrupting that was the ghost of christmas past, mitt 47% romney who on a conference call with donors attributed his loss to gifts bestowed by president obama. >> what the president -- president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base toolgs, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> despite the fact that they supported his positions throughout the entire campaign, a frightened herd of republicans trampled over each other in a stampede away from romney's remarks. intent on selling a friendlier more compassionate gop, they included bobby jindal who was best known for totally blowing the republican response to the 2009 state of the union. >> good evening and happy mardi gras. i'm bobby jindal, governor of la louisiana. >> jindal has been the lead voice in the romney dissing, self-critical ameliorated gop. >> i absolutely reject that notion that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. >> this is completely not helpful. this is not where the republican needs to go. we need to
is underscoring his reasonableness. i feel like this is a reasonableness towards having romney to the white house, meeting with ceos who donated to romney going out there as michael crowley pointed out, we were chit chatting over the president, full disclosure, the president using a fair and balanced to describe his approach which is a republican line. >> never heard the phrase. >> but, you know, the question is, does that at some point backfire for him? the republicans seem to be pushing back saying this is extreme, insane, we can't believe this is -- >> i think the best contrast for what's happening is the stimulus bill that happened in 2009. it was the first thing he did after being elected in 2008 and did a dramatically different than what he did now. he structured the bill with the tax cuts in it and told republicans okay, come on board, you have about a third of the tax cuts in the package, that's what you wanted and he didn't give them an incentive to buy into the enterprise. he didn't allow them to claim ownership of the change to the legislation and did an inside game what melissa was ta
have one of my own. >> mitt romney said he could give us a magic pony, lower rates and have tax reform and deducts that wouldn't hit anybody. so how do you get the extra money that makes up for lower rates? magic pony again and again every time he said the word revenues in that statement it would make sense. i think we're -- the big question, i think, is still on the republican side. remember i wrote this book called showdown that went into all of the negotiations from last year, and again and again the issues seemed to be that john boehner couldn't bring to the table his side. the president, i thought, was willing to do exactly what you just suggested, to take some heat from the left and of the spectrum, make the deal and make concessions, see what the other side needed and i think boehner on his own could agree to that, he did but couldn't match the gang of six and couldn't get the tea party to go along without a mutiny. >> what of the tea party? we've had an election, the president has been re-elected the senate is now back in -- remains in democratic can hands. republicans are not
an enormous boom, a big part of romney's tax plan, there's no basis of it on our current understanding of economics. >> ben, when we talk about the cultural shift one way or the other, the person whose name has come up frequently in the last week is grover norquist. eugene robinson writing perhaps an optimistic op-ed yesterday that says maybe the fever is breaking, maybe the delirrium is lifting. maybe republicans are asking themselves what were we thinking when we put an ya surds l unrealistic pledge to a lobbyist in washington. this comes on the heels of a few saying they might be open to tax. >> [ inaudible ] there's also, you know, the republican study committee and all of the kind of ideological mechanisms that have been pushing the republican party to the right. >> and the whole tea party. >> the tea party. >> and wealthy people. >> so that's the key here. for me what's interesting about this, this is a probe into the ceo's soul. if you look at cnbc, the ceos are going like the apocalypse. >> december 21st. >> and what's interesting here is, is the business community, the chamber
was the problem that mitt romney was a poopy head, he actually said that. >> that is deep. >> it gives me a lot to think about. but i really think that he's really slow in grappling with his new reality. it's not going to be easy for the president, but it's a new day. >> grover has a lot of interests in demonstrating the notion that we are in the exact same place, and he's historically accurate that obama did threaten this at one point and caved, preelection. but robert, let's remember that there is a larger battle going on. it is not just that the president does have a big mandate. he just ran and won on these plans. but also, even before that, the grover norquist wing of the party may be shrinking. look at what george bush senior said recently in an interview. "the circumstances change and you can't be wedded to some formula by grover norquist. it's -- who the hell is grover norquist anyway?" we can say that because we're quoting a former president. who is grover norquist and is he as powerful as he thinks about it? >> he is someone powerful. but at the end of the day, the american people smo

-- sort of out tough talk one another, to say mitt romney had as stance he was going to, you know, talk to tough to china on day one. he was not elected. president obama's trip to burma and the southeast asia is seen as a way to say, china, we're in your backyard and not going to let you have a monopoly over this part of the world. something the president has looked to do for several years now. the issue is whether, a, he can do that, whether he can really actually intimidate the chinese, and b, whether this is the time to be doing it given what's happened in the middle east. i will point out what professor gin canwrong said. the pivot, speaking of obama's pivot to the middle east is a stupid choice. the united states has achieved nothing and only annoyed china. china can't be contained. i wish the professor would tell us what he or she really thinks. in terms of the pivot happening now, your assessment? >> i think the pivot is part of a refocus that the administration needs to make. look, you know, despite the way mitt romney talked about, you know, standing up to china, it needs to kn
the truth. imagine if mitt romney had won 332 electoral college votes. what we would be looking at is the affordable care act would be toast and looking at a 20% tax cut across the board for everybody and they would be singing that melody from the hills and valleys throughout the country. >> the republicans. >> they got shellacked and beaten and instead of actually saying okay, the electorate has spoken, the exit polls suggests the president has support for raising taxes, in the overwhelming majority, they still will not come around to accepting that the world is now as it is. almost on another mplanet like ukraines you like fox news where the discussion and the argument, i see, i seem to feel, is taking place in another place. the election actually happened in america, on planet earth. >> you know, you also have to think -- >> did it? >> i'm frequently going to the moon, sat turn and jupiter for my vacations. the moon isn't even a planet. in terms of the reality of getting anything passed, joy, nancy pelosi has 200 votes in the house. >> indeed. >> you need 218 to get anything

. governor romney suggested that during the campaign. >> senator, pain is not something we like to talk about in american politics under any circumstances. are you confident -- i mean there has been some talk democrats do not want to put entitlement reform on the table at all ever. but you seem to think this is a real -- this will happen? >> alex, and, in fact, on the super committee the democrats put forward serious proposals on entitlement reform. we have stated very clearly, that you don't have to cut benefits to do it. that will impact people directly. i mean charging people more for their medicare is not part of the solution that we believe. privatizing it as ryan has suggested it. but we put serious, you know, considerable dollars on the table. that was rejected by the republicans for one reason. they didn't want to match it with revenue. and that's why the debate we're having right now, about extending the bush tax cuts for 98% of the americans, the middle class, is the right thing to do. letting the wealthiest tax cuts, the tax cuts go back to the clinton era, will provide the revenue
